    After seeing what the draft has to offer, what is your mentality going into the draft?

    Trading up to get that superstar player that could push you into the playoffs?

    Trading down for more picks?

    Trading away picks for players?

    Just asking to get a better idea of who to trade with during the draft.

    My approach is to trade down for more picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    I believe I hold the #5 overall pick. May have to trade up to snag that 84 overall QB, because the 83 overall QB isn't my style. Also might draft the best player available and see what QB falls to me for my second 1st round pick

    Best players available. I have needs at several positions. I'm not sure where I'm drafting though. I finished 10-6 I think so it'll be in the bottom half for sure.

    I'm not sure, I would love to get an accurate QB, but I doubt one will fall to me. If not I will look at D and receivers. Maybe a decent H-back as well

    I think I am going to sit tight and try to fill in some holes. I need a SS in a bad way. I could also use a center and some youth at LB

    I believe there's a chat dialogue box in the draft interface as well.

    I'm going to aim for positions of need. Based off of the players at those positions, if one has a badass name, I will probably take him over others, as long as the skills are similar. I mean, I just saw a player named Jazz Berry. Why would I not want him?

    Is there anyway we can sort the players by overall on the EA site?

    Click on overall at the top of the box. But it only shows some positions. Best way I found is to sort by awareness, then click overall. I can't find a way to see all players, though.

    anyone know the time limit between picks? I'm trying to gauge how long this draft should take tonight.

    We're starting at 8 cen / 9 east right?

    I assume that there is some sort of "auto pilot" or auto pick or something that can be used if it's getting too late and the older dudes in this league start nodding off.
